Ubisoft Believes Super Smash Bros. Will Revive Wii U

Along with Just Dance.

The Wii U has been doing a bit poorer than it should be. It’s an excellent console with some wonderful games, but mass market success has constantly eluded it. Even the power of the incredible Mario Kart 8 could not really help move the console at a desirable pace of sales.

However, eventually, the console is bound to hit a critical mass of desirability and visibility- Ubisoft, one of the system’s most ardent supporters (ones who nevertheless spoke out against supporting it with core games recently) believes that period will be this Holidays, and that the highly anticipated Super Smash Bros. (and Ubisoft’s own Just Dance 2014) will be the catalysts.

“Super Smash Bros. has some of the best moments that Nintendo has shared. I think that franchise could be magical for the Wii U,” they said to GamesIndustry.

“To be honest, we always want more consoles,” they continued. “Just Dance 2015 is resonating very well. We think it will please a lot of [existing] Wii U owners and push more families to buy extra Wii Us. But we also believe that Super Smash Bros. will be a trigger to increase the momentum of the Wii U at Holidays. As a gamer, I was playing [Super Smash Bros.] over ten years ago, and it has some of the best moments that Nintendo has shared. I think that franchise could be magical [for the Wii U].

Nintendo has some of the best franchises in the world and it knows how to make great games. It proved that with Mario Kart, and it will prove that again with Super Smash.”

Well, Ubisoft, you and I are agreed one one thing- Nintendo are the best developers in the world, with the best franchises in the world. Whether that is enough to save the Wii U, we’ll see soon enough. We’ll see that very soon.
